Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1133119A2] A technique is provided for a proximity based service adaption. According to an embodiment, a first user terminal (such as a computer) is provided and includes a radio unit to establish a radio link with one or more radio units in other terminals or devices, an interface unit to determine a proximity state of a second user terminal with respect to the first user terminal based on a state of a radio link between the first and second user terminals. The first user terminal also includes a service adaption unit to configure one or more user services based on the proximity state of the second user terminal with respect to the first user terminal. The second user terminal may be, for example, a mobile phone or other mobile terminal typically carried with the user. The radio unit may be a Bluetooth unit or other type of radio unit. According to an embodiment, the existence of a radio link between the first and second user terminal indicates a "close" proximity state, while non-existence of the radio link indicates a "far" proximity state. Power control functionality in the radio units or other techniques can also be used to detect the proximity or closeness of the two user terminals. <IMAGE>
